Simply, please disable Windows notifications from the settings app - disable , and Windows suggestions you can disable - if you have confidence in your own experience!
Good luck.


I understood that the sound works fine - only the settings controller notifications are disturbing, is that the case?

This happens mainly due to driver issue.
Uninstall, reinstall and update audio driver.
You may need to run the audio troubleshooter-it might be able to fix audio problems automatically.

To run the troubleshooter

In the search box on the taskbar, type audio troubleshooter, select Fix and find problems with playing sound from the results, then select Next.

Select the device you want to troubleshoot and then continue through the troubleshooter.

I'll ask if the Windows Repair tool has ever fixed something?

I do not want to use it - because it makes no predictable changes to settings without reporting! And fixing notifications should be improved throughout the system because it often misleads non-experienced users!

It takes 20 years to improve the diagnostic tool without success!
Indexation can not check everything unfortunately - I also recommend writing reviews!
Good luck
